    i9 9900KS


    So the 9900KS was announced today partially. There is still an embargo on performance details until 30th. TechDeals said that it is being maid in a limited number.

    What are member's thoughts on this.

    Yeah but can it validate in CPU-Z at 5.65606GHz, at ambient temps, like my baby?
    It was even stable enough to run a few UWP apps.

    Depends on where you look....its already been tested on some sites, and results have been posted. I've been waiting for Intel to release this chip for last 2 weeks. It should OC much better than the 9900K series. Time will tell. Also I've read a 390 board is better suited for this chip. Opinions will differ I'm sure. It will still take 2 to 4 weeks before it reaches the stores. I posted news about this chip 7 hours ago in another thread already ....

    I'd so upgrade to a new case if i could afford it, I9 9900KS chip, water cooled all in one (hopefully sealed cooler lol) and hope it never leaks, and Z390 Motherboard, upgrade Ram to 16gb DD4 2666mhz lol, but at the moment think i maybe waiting a while to upgrade my Intel I7 7700 system, oh well lol, doesn't hurt to dream I guess

    Hi there

    I'm not a gamer but do a load of Video editing so this could also be a lot of interest to "Non Gamers" too.
    The problem with all these CPU's is usually getting / finding the appropriate GPU to go with them and providing adequate cooling -- especially if you have limited storage space. No point in having this type of CPU if it's waiting on the GPU half the time because of non matching graphics performance.

    I think also you'd need Windows 10 Pro / Enterprise / Workstation edition as --I'm not sure here --but I think Windows Home editions can't run fully 8 cores concurrently.

    All the other components on a Mobo also need to be able to handle throughput -- It's a big waste of money if you have this type of component and then the slowest Disks on the planet -- SAS / Fibre I/O is what you need here -- but now you are talking really high end expensive (and not very portable !!!!) gear.

    "Anyone for Xmas" yet !!!! --Well I suppose one can only dream of this stuff though -- or win the Euromillions Lottery.

    cheers

    Well I do have Windows 10 Pro, but yeah a GPU upgrade probably better for myself with my Intel I7 7700, than a whole motherboard, storage upgrade, CPU upgrade in all honestly, as nothing i really do requires 5ghz speed

    Remember this CPU is available for a limited time, once they're gone, they're gone.

    I was looking at it until I saw it was limited so I've decided on the 3700x or 3900x with x570 mobo.
